    Only 22 teams will take part in the Disney series, 13 from the West, 9 from the East, playing in an 8-game tournament to determine the 16 teams for the playoffs. So if a ninth place team is 4-games off the 8th place team, then the series would end and the playoffs will begin. Positioning among the top teams from each conference will be determined but only the Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Lakers seem to be the only two teams assured of No.1 seeding in their conferences.

    watched the game earlier of the Lakers & Magic. boy, they look so rusty.

    but great game by Kuz, KCP & Waiters.

    the lakers are missing the defense of AVery Bradley though. that will be a concern going into the playoffs

    The scrimmages look like Summer League. :whistle: Apparently no one wants to make a statement yet until the games open on the 31st.

    I'm still on the fence about reactivating my League pass subscription. I cancelled it during the pandemic for lack of content. And seeing the scrimmages, I'm not really dying to re-activate. First, the court is so dull. Not sure if we will get the old camera angles too but the ones I've seen so far aren't to my liking. I feel like I'm watching a FIBA game or something; it seems like a totally different product and not the NBA that we know and love. I'm also in the Team "they shouldn't be playing at all" because of what's happening in the States.

    But having said all these, I will likely reactivate my subscription anyway because I love basketball so much but I'll wait and see how the real games look like first.

    so how are you finding the atmosphere so far? No fans.. no homecourt advantage... I think the refs can be more objective now.. . just by watching from the TV though, I can still feel the excitement.

    It's like watching a Black Mirror episode, with the fake fans and overall vibe.

    ^Like a street ball game where everyone is doing his own take and no one else gives a shit about it. I think the allure of NBA games is the crowd intensity not the game itself.

    I kinda tuned out of the first game I watched (battle for LA) TBH. I still can't get over the dull court. Maybe they can do a digital overlay of some colors on the floor or something (like how the shot clock shows up on the hardwood). At least the commentary sounds "normal" but the lack of crowd interaction is really something to get used to. Perhaps they can improve the digitized crowd in the future to include the actual faces (and cheers) of league pass subscribers? Maybe I'll resume my League pass subscription in the playoffs.
